First of all, everyone is inspired by something already existing. This particular song seems to bring out the inspiration for many, many others. Absolutely nothing wrong with building on something to make it even more amazing than the original. Here’s further proof:
Yep, we’re back with another Gotye cover, but this one is supremely delicious because it’s done by the amazing Coheed and Cambria. You know the music is good when you literally get the shivers and you can feel the goosebumps before you even see them. These guys (and Claudio’s wife) fall in this category. Gorgeous tunes. Incredible artistry. And wow, are they powerful!!! Mixing different styles of rock and making it into something worth listening to. A modern Rush (?). Yes, yes, I have a huge weakness for guitars (actually, a lot of different string instruments). And people who love to collaborate with others. Who doesn’t?
There are just so many amazing musicians out there that it’s hard to keep track. But it’s never a problem to find a new one because you can never have too much good music! The only annoying thing is that I didn’t find them much sooner – teaches me that I need to keep pushing to find as much incredible music out there as I can.
